CCHP Physiotherapy Referral

CCHP Physiotherapy Referral

Community Paediatric Physiotherapists see children from Birth to school-leaving age with a movement difficulty, motor delay or physical disability. This may include the following conditions :

  • Neurological e.g. cerebral palsy, spina bifida, head injury.
  • Neuro muscular e.g.  muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, neuropathy.
  • Developmental delay, general developmental delay and syndromes.
  • Discharge following trauma or orthopaedic surgery.
  • Respiratory if already known to service for another existing condition.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • Motor Coordination Difficulties ( DCD).


How to refer

Anyone can make a referral to this service. Please use the Single Point of Entry (SPE) form (related documents - below) to make your referral.

All new referrals are jointly triaged by an Occupational Therapist (OT), Physiotherapist and Early Years Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) on a weekly basis. If your child meets the referral criteria they will be offered an assessment.

Depending on need, this may be a joint OT and Physio assessment (and if appropriate, will include an SLT), or you may be assessed by a single service.

In some cases we may request additional information about your child, such as a Functional Skills Checklist.
